Life Rising Supplements Recalled For Possible Lead Contamination

Life Rising Corporation of Willowbrook, Illinois, is recalling  Life Rising Holder-W Holder Warmer capsules, Life Rising NECK-ND Neck Clear capsules, and HoliCare Metabolism Cleansing (MET-CLS) tablets because they may cantina excessive levels of lead. When consumed, lead can cause serious health problems, including damage to the nervous system and internal organs.

Symptoms of acute, or short term, lead poisoning include abdominal pain, nausea, muscle weakness, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, and bloody urine. The long term consequences of lead poisoning can include learning difficulties, hearing loss, lower IQ, and developmental delay. Children are especially vulnerable to lead poisoning.

These recalled dietary supplements were sold mostly in the Chicago area at HoliCare clinics, and some were also sold through mail order. The recall includes all of the Life Rising Holder-W Holder Warmer capsules and Life Rising NECK-ND Neck Clear capsules that were purchased before May 2, 2019; and lot number T81171040 of the HoliCare Metabolism Cleansing (MET-CLS) tablets.

The Life Rising Holder-W Holder Warmer capsules are sold in a bottle with 54 capsules, the Life Rising NECK-ND Neck Clear capsules are sold in a bottle with 54 capsules, and the HoliCare Metabolism Cleansing (MET-CLS) tablets are sold in a bottle with 60 tablets, marked with lot # T81171040 on the bottom.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue. The recall was started after sampling by the FDA found that the products contained high levels of lead which exceeded the new daily limits of 3 µg per day for children, the 12.5 µg per day for adults. The sale of these products has been suspended and inventory has been put on hold while the FDA investigates.

If you purchased any of these items, do not consume them. You should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Do not throw the tablets away.
